Dressed in dapper wool through the streets of San Francisco

Tweeds of Belleville, Sept 16th

Posted By on August 10, 2009

Les Triplettes De BellevilleSF Tweed is pleased to announce the next San Francisco tweed ride! Wednesday September 16th, we will be joining the fine chaps of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition for their Bike-In Movie screening of Triplets of Belleville.

As no tweed outing is proper without a bit of pedaling, we will be meeting up at Dolores Park at the Bell near 19th St at the far tennis courts at 18th and Church. for an slightly abridged tweed ride at 6:30 pm. From Dolores we will pedal off through the Mission with a quick stop for libations before we arrive at 8pm for the SFBC Bike-In Movie (Parking lot across from the Good Hotel, 112 Seventh Street, at Mission).

Note, due to the need to get to the movie on time there will be no scheduled BART meet up with East Tweeds. We still would love to see all our East Tweed cousins and encourage all to show up for libations and the movie!

UPDATE: we have changed the start location to the tennis courts because the Bay Area Derailleurs Bicycle Dance Troupe has asked the dapper SF Tweed riders to be extras in a short 10-15 minute filming session with their troupe!
